A SPLIA and Seatuck Environmental Center Program Partnership
Hikers, joggers, bird watchers, nature lovers and families are invited to enjoy our new trail along a glacial moraine which features local wildlife including red tailed hawks, red fox, flying squirrels, eastern box turtles, great horned owls, gray catbirds and downey woodpeckers.
The trail is located on Suffolk County property and is accessed from the site of the Sherwood-Jayne Farm. Interpreted by the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities (SPLIA,) the classic “salt box” was built in about 1730 by Mathias Jayne and enlarged twice by the Jaynes and once by SPLIA founder, Howard Sherwood.
The three mile trail is open during daylight hours.
